§ 45. Mr. W. Brown
asked the Prime Minister when he anticipates that he Report of the Beveridge Committee will be available for discussion by the House of Commons?
§ The Lord Privy Seal (Sir Stafford Cripps)
It is anticipated that Sir William Beveridge's Report will be published at the end of this month. Until the Report is available, I am not in a position to make any statement as to its discussion.
§ Sir J. Mellor
Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that Sir William Beveridge has stated that his Report takes us half-way to Moscow? Do the Government agree with that view?
Could the publication of the Report be so expedited, that Members might have some chance of discussing it during the prolonged discussions on the Address?
§ 54. Mr. Granville
asked the Paymaster-General when the Beveridge Report on Social Welfare will be published?
§ The Paymaster-General (Sir William Jowitt)
As my right hon. and learned Friend the Leader of the House has just said, it is anticipated that Sir William Beveridge's Report will be published at the end of this month.
§ Mr. Granville
As this Report deals with the poor people of this country, will the right hon. and learned Gentleman see that there is not only a large publication but a cheap publication, to enable it to be purchased on a wide scale, particularly by the Fighting Forces?
